Hannover Messe 2011 saw more than 230,000 visitors gather last week to take part in one of the most important hydrogen events on the calendar. With such record turnout, the event constituted the largest Hannover Messe in ten years.

The 17th Group Exhibition of Hydrogen + Fuel Cells was organised by Tobias Renz FAIR – an organising company owned by Managing Director, Tobias Renz. The event took place at Hannover Messe Fairgrounds, in Laatzen, Germany just days ago and attracted attendance from a global cohort. Among those to exhibit were such renowned companies as Acta S.p. A., BASF SE and Dana Holding Corporation.

Plans are already underway for next year’s version; Hannover Messe 2012 as Tobias Renz FAIR take early bookings.
